Ghostbusters: The Video Game
12 April 2014
Conclusion: You can finish it with every item and ghost scanned in about 5 hours. It is still an OK rental or better borrow it from a friend for free. The multiplayer adds a bit to it, but it is the same thing you've been doing for five hours. Catching ghosts.
Summary: " Ghostbusters " is pretty hit-and-miss. In some parts it looks fantastic, and in others, pretty shoddy. In some parts, it’s really funny, and in other parts, it falls flat. The multiplayer can be pretty fun, but it’s pretty glitchy.
Excerpt: During my childhood, four heroes made my imagination fly to the most unexpected places and live the most outrageous adventures. I still remember how I used to run with a school backpack with a small hose attached to it trying to emulate the brave (and inevitably funny) paranormal inspectors.

Pros: It feels exactly like playing a never-released Ghostbusters movie.
Cons: Bill Murray has a few good lines, but mostly phones in his performance.
Conclusion: Knowing that my choices can have an effect not only in the immediate future, but in later episodes is especially promising. Right after the episode ended, there was a “next time on Walking Dead ” scene previewing the next episode.
Conclusion: Overall, it isn’t too difficult for me to recommend this title to anyone with an interest in The Walking Dead , zombies in general, or gameplay that strays away from current trends in the industry.
Excerpt: Editor’s note: Harrison is a new writer joining the team here at Talking About Games. Play nice, and give him a warm welcome! Ghostbusters fans both young and old alike have been waiting eagerly to strap on their proton packs and bust ghosts of different shapes and sizes with Egon, Ray, Peter, and...
